The article at the link below considers the legal question of whether a municipality needs a court order to lawfully terminate the supply of electricity/water to a property.
It was written by Maike Gohl (senior associate at Schindlers) and I on the basis of our experience in court, in particular in relation to urgent applications.
Although at first glance most people will answer in the negative immediately, this issue is not quite as clear cut as we have come to accept it as being.
There is thus a potential for a change in the law, as also a different interpretation and application of it.
We trust that this will assist you all in your dealings with your local municipalities.
